Health Ministry Launches Online Portal to Verify COVID-19 Vaccination Status

Following the forgery of COVID-19 vaccination cards and the use of fake vaccines, the Health Ministry has launched an online portal through, which those vaccinated can check their status and get certificates.

To find out one’s vaccination status, people who have been fully vaccinated need to enter in the details of their identification number and the last six digits of the mobile phone number they used at vaccination. 

For the identification number, vaccinated persons can enter in their national identification number (NIN) or passport numbers.

Dr. Alfred Driwale, the Programme Manager of the Uganda National Expanded Programme on Immunization-UNEPI, says that the system is instant, adding that applicants should be able to get a PDF copy of their verified results within seconds.

According to Driwale, the vaccination certificate will be country’s official COVID-19 vaccination document.

Currently upon vaccination, one receives a card from the Health Ministry bearing their particulars such as name, occupation, name of the vaccine used and when the second dose should be administered.

While the online certificate will carry some of the details on the cards being issued, the Health Ministry’s Senior Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ainebyoona, says the certificates will also have a QR code that can be scanned to verify the authenticity of the card.
